Join us in welcoming our Summer 2022 interns Lynn Sleiman, Cate Byrne, and Claire Randolph! They have already hit the ground running and are making huge strides advancing our mission to drive the sustainable and regenerative design, construction, and operation of the built environment. We know the BE+ community will benefit from their inspired work, and we hope you can wish them a warm welcome! We are eager to see the impact they make throughout the summer, as they apply their skills, passions, talents and dedication to the big challenges confronting us all.
We are so grateful to have them on board!
Hello! My name is Lynn Sleiman and I am a summer intern at BE+. I am an international student from Lebanon, majoring in Architectural Studies at Mount Holyoke College. My main aim is to focus on the environmental impact that my designs have. By emphasizing green technologies, architects can improve living conditions and the comfort of clients. Reducing the impact of human beings on the environment is one of the fundamental characteristics of my work because the management of energy production and consumption can have a major impact on the health and well-being of people. My second goal is to find ways to redefine design and architecture as a form of empowerment for marginalized communities around the world to act as an important pillar of global equality. I aim to reclaim spaces and focus on equity, inclusion, diversity, and identity, to reconstruct the power dynamics of our society. Through my internship at BE+, I hope to learn more about the various innovations supporting the green building industry as well as enhance my knowledge of sustainable practices.
I am excited to join the BE+ team this summer, and to learn as much as I can about sustainability within the built environment! This past May, I earned a bachelor’s in Contemporary Improvisation and a minor in Environmental Science from New England Conservatory. I am looking forward to continuing my education in the fall at Bard College, where I will be pursuing a masters in Climate Science and Policy. During my time with BE+, I will be assisting with our education initiatives. Education is an important tool to advocate for healthy built environments and environmental justice, and it is so exciting to see all the trainings and events BE+ offers. I am grateful to be working with and learning from this wonderful community!
Hi all! My name is Claire and I am so excited to be working with the BE+ team this summer as an intern. I am entering my fourth year at Northeastern University where I am studying Business with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and a minor in Sustainability and Environmental Science. I am looking forward to learning more about what it means to work in sustainability and green building, as I hope to pursue a career in the environmental field after I graduate in 2024. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to meet green building professionals through my work this summer and communicate Built Environment Plus’ message with the greater Boston community.
